Preparing your trip to Warsaw: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Warsaw, Old Town Square 1. Savvy travelers should pay attention to hotels that are located away from the center of the city. They differ not only by very reasonable prices, but also by their fairly modest services. There is a small campground near the central bus station in Warsaw.
2. Travellers who plan to visit religious sites should select their clothes more carefully. People wearing too bright or revealing clothing may not be allowed to enter many churches.
3. Photography and video shooting are permitted in most churches and museums of the city. However, in some institutions this may be available for a small additional fee. The only thing tourists must remember is not to use prohibited types of photo and video shooting. Do not use the flash during both photo and video shooting.
4. Museums and other cultural institutions usually have excursions on the Polish language, so travelers are recommended to purchase a guide in advance. You can also book excursions in other languages, but this should be also made in advance.
5. Do not forget to keep an eye on your belongings in public places. Do not leave your coats and bags unattended in cafes and restaurants of Warsaw. It is also not recommended to take large amounts of cash with you without any particular need. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. When going for a walk, it is necessary to take a copy of your identity document. Documents and other valuables are better to be kept in a safe in your hotel room.
7. Waiters are traditionally provided with small cash rewards in local restaurants and cafes. The amount of the tip is usually about 10% of the total order.
